If you’re not a member of your local freecycle group, it’s a great place to find a home for things you no longer want, but know someone can use. A plus for me are the email messages that make you smile. There have been a couple in particular the last month that have caused me to crack a smile.
[marshallcountyiafreecycle] OFFER:4 Jars of Grape Jelly
I have 4 jars of grape jelly. Only serious takers only. Need to get rid of ASAP. Email me back if you want them.
(I hate to think of what might happen if these aren’t gone ASAP! I also worry about people emailing who aren’t serious about the grape jelly and just jerk her around and ask if she might have raspberry jam instead of grape jelly)
Or this one:
[marshallcountyiafreecycle] Offer: one Night stand (Marshalltown)
(This one might have attracted the wrong kind of attention – it’s not often night stands are separated like this)
Enough of the freecycle. On another note, isn’t it curious that the day after our visit to the Accordion European restaurant, the “year ago” is entitled “Accordion Skywalk Player.” Just must be something about this time of year and accordions!
